AFAIK the problem here is that plasmashell simply does not use the icons from the icon theme.
Instead they use icons extracted from a larger SVG file:


e.g. opening /usr/share/plasma/desktoptheme/air/icons/network.svgz
with inkscape shows the attached image.

Oxygen still provides colored icons, e.g. check

You can either change the svg file or
you can try liquidshell instead which uses the icons from the icon theme
(e.g. "network-wireless-connected-%1" icons for the wireless signal strength)
